Citrus Substitution for Tangerine in Semifreddo
I want to make the Tangerine Semifreddo with Salted Almond Brittle from the epicurious website. I actually already made the brittle before realizing tangerines are no longer available for me here.
Any issue with just using oranges or possibly clementines? If I were making a cake, I would not think twice...but I've never made semifreddo and feel like I should seek guidance!
Maybe try orange juice with a little lime juice in a 2:1 ratio; that combo might give you a reasonably close tangerine flavor.
Citrus from Florida, including tangerines, is at the end or way past the growing season now. Limes from who knows where, maybe Mexico, seem to be in plentiful supply now and oranges are always available.
That recipe is fantastic. I've made it several times. Clementines or a combination of them with oranges are fine. Just use anything flavorful. I've used zest from one type and juice from another.
I've been thinking about trying it with grapefruit.
You don't have those "cuties" right now? Little tangerines sold in bulk. I'm not sure where they come from but they are in all the stores in northern california.
